    "Our fourth child is currently attending Northern High, a sophomore, graduating in 2017. Our first child graduated in 2008, our second in 2010, our third in 2014. I cannot say enough good things about the math program!! They have a fabulous AP Calc teacher, our child's junior year class, AP Calc AB all received 4's and 5's on the AP exam. Our second child goofed off in 8 and 9 grades and so the school made him take 2 periods of math to remediate, lost 1 elective, which was the best thing that could have happened!! He did great in Honors Trig by his Senior year. All those years my kids loved their math teachers. AP offerings are Lit, Lang, Calc AB, Calc BC Physics, Bio, World Lit, US Hist, Gov, Music and more. Orchestra is awesome! English hit and miss, but generally good, wish they emphasized more classics to help prepare for college. History is fabulous, Science good but not as strong as Math and History. Facility is older, getting a new one. Great offerings for journalism, broadcasting, chamber choir. Many good families at this school, our student feels safe. LOTS of homework, not busywork projects. Prepared our children well for college!!"

    "My daughter went to NHS all four years. She took AP history and AP English. She hardly ever had homework. She did great on her SAT scores. We thought she was ready for college. However when she got there she was never taught how to write a paper. How to do the research or to site and how to format a paper. For a student who got good grades and was going to her counselor to make she was on the write path, the teachers did not do their job, luckily my husband was able to teach her and help her with her first paper be cause she had no clue on how to do a paper. It was a long weekend but he taught her cause teachers did not!!! Unacceptable!"

    "The academics at the school are excellent. The way some of the sports programs are coached on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired. In many instances, it is a good old boy-network where if you and your family aren't juiced in your child probably won't have a fair shake at participation. My child's coach fostered inappropriate treatment of my child and others and has actively participated in gossip about other parents and children on the team that they have had issues with. Recommend the school for academics, SGA, Class Council, FBLA and some sports. I would suggest that you do your research on the particular sport's program your child is interested in before they tryout or it could be detrimental to their well-being."

    "It looks like a lot has changed. I went to NHS 15 years ago and it was a joke. I was completely unprepared for college. I don't even remember doing any work there. It was overcrowded with unqualified teachers teaching core subjects. Hopefully things have indeed changed. I had a great time in my high school years but definitely did not get a quality education from NHS."

    "The school is great but old. It is supposed to be replaced on site in 2014. Sports are o.k. Our son was well prepared for the SATs. Science and math were notable high points."
